“We have a LOT of new potatoes from our allotment when they're in season and, once the novelty wears off, boiled potatoes and butter can get a little tiresome, so I like to mess around with ideas to liven them up a bit. This is one of them. Please note that measurements are approximate as I eyeballed the amounts, so you may want to focus on the concept rather than the figures!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 new potatoes (depending on size)
  • 12 cup butter
  • 100 g mexican cheese (or as much as you like)
  • salt & pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200c.
  2. Slice new potatoes to about 0.5cm thick and par-boil for approximately 5-10mins until mostly cooked.
  3. Spread potatoes out in an oven proof dish and dot the butter about evenly over the top.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and cover with cheese (you can grate it or just put it on sliced - it works either way).
  5. Bake in the oven for approximately 10mins or until potatoes are cooked and cheese has fully melted.
  6. PLEASE NOTE -- My oven temperature is notoriously misleading, so please don't rely too heavily on my timings and settings. No-one knows your ovens like you do so just adjust as you see fit.
